“What is a quote? A quote (cognate with quota) is a cut, a section, a slice of someone's orange. You suck the slice, toss the rind, skate away.”

a) I know what a “bastard” is.
b) It’s an offensive, antiquated earth based term.
c) The Peacekeepers did not have marriage and did not have children born into marriage or out of it why would this even enter Aeryn’s mind.
d) John never struck me as especially religious, conservative, or eager to live out some kind of “traditional marriage” fantasy, especially after 4 years in space.
e) I don’t think embracing traditional religious conservative earth values and practices is what the show meant by telling Aeryn she could be “more”.
f) If someone not John tried to introduce Aeryn to the concept of some children not having as much value as others based on the how and when of their conception and birth I think she’d laugh in their face and then punch them and then go share the stupidity she just heard with John.
g) If John tried to introduce her to the concept I think she’d laugh in his face and then punch him and then check him out for possible alien possession.
h) Seriously, it’s offensive and does not make sense within the universe.
i) If the writers just did it for themselves they’re jerks and they weren’t paying attention during the series.
j) If the writers did it for the audience they don’t have a very high opinion of the audience or how well the audience was paying attention during the series.
k) Why go to “bastard” when you could chalk her weird insistence up to pregnancy hormones - those were some super powerful biological changes Aeryn was going through to grow a perfectly healthy full term baby in 3 days and not rip her body apart like a scene from Alien.
l) Actually k isn’t a terrible solution all things considered, thanks anon.

It’s more heartbroken anger than dislike, but yes, yes, I do.
Won’t be a “bastard” to whom?
